RDH

This year I am celebrating my 25th year as a RDH and my 8th year with Dr. Long. My duties include: providing routine dental maintenance care, extensive root planing, screening for periodontal disease, tooth counseling and all other duties associated with preventative care. Having worked for many dental offices throughout the Central Valley, I can honestly say that working for Dr. Long and his staff has been the most fulfilling experience of my career. The professionalism, expertise, integrity, knowledge and genuine care and concern for patients from Dr. Long and the teammates are unmatched. I love people; being able to serve and help others is why I chose to become a hygienist. I have many valued friendships that have blossomed from one-on-one time in my dental chair. In my downtime I enjoy hiking, anything outdoors, and my pets, and as most of my patients know, my passion in life is slalom waterskiing!

I've worked with this office for 10 years! As a Registered Dental Assistant, I assist Dr. Long chair side with patient care, X-rays, in-office teeth whitening and other various duties. I love my job -- working with my hands and getting to see the happy smiles when the patients love the outcome is the best part. I'm a native Californian, and have three wonderful children and two equally wonderful step-children who have collectively blessed us with a dozen grandchildren! When I'm not at work, you can find my playing golf with my husband, kayaking, or working in my yard.
